  History  
 
Allen Tony28/06/2010The Regina SS is a shipwreck (which sank in 1940) near Bradenton Beach, Florida, United States. It is located in the Gulf of Mexico, 75 yards off the coast from Bradenton Beach. In April 2005, it became the tenth Florida Underwater Archaeological Preserve. On December 6th of the same year, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

The Regina was built in November 1904 by Workman Clark & Cpy Ltd, Belfast, Ireland. At the time of her loss she had been stripped of most of her machinery and converted to a barge.

On the 8th March 1940 the barge and her tug encountered a storm when loaded with molasses from Cuba. She grounded some 500 yards from the shore.
